Drawing Demons

Got busy with the pen and ink this weekend (while mopping mucus) and drew one of my demons.

The scan made the pen and ink lines, particularly on the shading of her legs, a little less clean (darn office scanner), but still okay. Maybe it’s time to invest in my own scanner. (I don’t think the office scanner, which only does PDF and TIFF files, is really designed for scanning artwork.)

A lot better than the scan of my acrylic vision of Dis, which is so dark and fuzzy it’s not even worth uploading. Arg. I give up. I’ve finished that scene anyway.

Back to nursing my cold.

          “Chick lit masterpiece” is definitely an oxymoron, but anyone who ignores or belittles that market is also one. A friend sent me some publishing stats recently. 40% of all books sold are romance novels. 40%. Fucking A. I don’t know what the stats on “chick lit” are per se. I’m still reeling over that last stat.

          Anyway, I’ll look forward to seeing your “chick lit masterpiece” on the Shop. Maybe you’ll post it more often than you post chapters of “Southern Gods.” (Nudge, nudge.)

            I’ve sort of fallen out of love with the OWW. It takes too darned long to go through a novel and to get the kind of reviews I need. And I was never a very good critiquer. I didn’t enjoy reading and critiquing. Maybe it was the quality of the writing on display there – not that I think I’m hot shit, but your writing is like your kids, they always seem cuter to you than strangers. So how can I ask other folks to do that for me if I wasn’t willing to do it for them?

            Also, I’ve found a nice little community of writers that I respect that are willing to read my stuff and give feedback. Sometimes the OWW gave me too much feedback and I didn’t know what to do.

            Anyway, that’s where I am with the OWW.

              N’owt wrong with that. The ‘Shop format can be very frustrating for novelists. It took me the better part of 2 years to workshop my novel. I think it may be easier and more gratifying for folks writing short stories.

              I get a lot out of critiquing because I learn from the mistakes of others. I do it with published novels I read, too. But if you don’t enjoy critiquing, then the ‘Shop is probably not the ideal format for you.

              What’s great is that you’ve found a community of writers you respect who are willing to read your stuff and give you feedback on it. That’s the important thing: to find a supportive community.

              So I’ll stop teasing you about posting to the ‘Shop. 😛


  1. Novel

    I thought I sent you my manuscript. If you didn’t receive it, I’ll let you take a peek. No pressure to critique, but it looks like it’ll be another year at least before it sees print.
